 Recipe Information  
Category: Condiments
# of Servings: 10
Recipe Created By: SoCaliMama


1 cup plain coconut yogurt
1 cup soy and/or egg-free mayo
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp dried chives
1/2 tsp dried dill weed
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 tsp lime juice (or more, to taste)
1/2 cup cilantro
1/4 cup tomatillo (or salsa verde) (optional)
dash cayenne pepper
dash chili powder

If you have an immersion blender, combine all ingredients and blend until creamy. Otherwise, chop cilantro until fine, combine all ingredients and whisk until creamy.

Chill for 20 minutes before serving.

All ingredients amounts can be modified to taste. Increasing the ratio of mayo to yogurt will make a thicker dip. This is excellent on shredded pork - in a taco, tostada or salad.

Regular yogurt and mayo can be substituted. It may be necessary to add a little sugar if using regular yogurt, as it is more tart than coconut yogurt.

There are soy and egg free mayos available but currently all have some form of corn in them. If not avoiding egg and soy, you may be able to find a mayo that is corn free.

Milk and Soy Substitutions: Alternative dairy-free milk beverages and products will work in most recipes. Find out more about milk substitutions and soy substitutions.

Coconut: Although classified by the FDA as a tree nut, coconut is not a common allergen and is not related to tree nuts. If you have a tree nut allergy, consult your physician to find out if you need to avoid coconut.

Egg Substitutions: There are many egg-free products and foods available to make your recipes free of eggs. Find out more about egg substitutions.

 Keep in Mind  
  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen. You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.
